Only responding to this because I find it a bit bothersome.
Seems to me that the 2005 Festival is in Minnesota, now the last I checked 
that isn't the West Coast, East Coast , Florida or Texas...but of course 
could be mistaken there.

I love the festivals wherever they are whenever I can get there and I truly 
appreciate the efforts of those that organize and run them. Thank You.

Mark, I think that perhaps your experience isn't too long on this cause 
festivals (at least to me) seem to be all over the place and that is kind of 
exciting!
